Tymo quarter

Tymo quarter

One of the most important tasks of developing the city was the re-establishment of the Tymo quarter.

In historical Tymo, handicrafts are being re-established after falling into decay after World War II. Small handicraft shops, various galleries and artists. Studios are being established making it possible for traditional handicrafts and multicultural fairs to be rejuvenated again in Vilnius, especially in its Old Town and which will also attract more visitors.
From the 14th-19th centuries, the Tymo quarter was surrounded by the Vilnia River and the loop of its channel, thus creating an island. The natural conditions were conducive to leather processing and so it was in the Tymo quarter that the first handicraft shops in Vilnius appeared. And the area became known as Tymo.
Somewhat later, the Tartars settled there and also practised their traditional craft of leather processing. In the middle of the 19th century most of the houses in this quarter belonged to small Jewish tradesmen. On the ground floor of most of the houses, there were inns, bakeries and shops. In 1960, the buildings of this craftsmen?s quarter were demolished and the ponds belonging to the Missionaries? Monastery were filled in and the garden was destroyed.
A number of events, fairs and festivals are held in the Tymo quarter. Nearby, the so-called Kūdrų Park with ponds has been laid out. The residents of Vilnius enjoy walking there.
